What did the Companion Believed about the Meelad Un Nabee [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]


Meelad Un Nabee of Holy Prophet Muhammad

[Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]

هاجرت إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقدمت عليه منصرفه من تبوك، فأسلمت

، فسمعت العباس بن عبد المطلب يقول: يا رسول الله إنى أريد أن أمتدحك، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: قل، لا يفضض الله فاك

When the Noble Prophet [Peace be upon Him] returned from the expedition of Tabook in Madinah, his uncle Hazrat Abbaas [Radiyal Laah Anhu]

sought permission to recite some lines of poetry in his praise. He replied saying:

“Recite, may your mouth remain fresh”.

Thereafter Hazrat Abbaas [Radial Laah Anhu] began to recite his poetry, inside the Masjid, before the Beloved Holy Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] and gathering of companions in which he mentioned the transition of our Prophet Muhammad in the loins of the previous Prophets and how he blessed them all, thereafter he said:

وأنت لما ولدت أشرقت الارض ونارت بنورك الافق

فنحن في ذلك الضياء وفى النور وسبل الرشاد نخترق

“...The day you were born the sun rose over the earth and the horizon was illumined with your Noor.

So, we – in that radiance and that light and paths of guidance – can pierce through”
